We went for the first time, service sucks, food was over priced and no flavor, the sushi was disgusting. This place is an absolute disgrace to other good Japanese restaurants.

I love hibachi and this is one of the best I've been to. I tried steak, chicken, and salmon. All were excellent. Fun chefs and good service.

The cheff was wonderful but the food was ok. I called back with a question and the receptionist acted as if I was not important. She didn't want to take the time to ask a simple question. This made me question do I really want...More
